A Burger! My waistline for a burger!
Though you might have missed it, there are going to be significant developments to the fast food giants Taco Bell and McDonald’s. Both corporations announced changes they are undertaking in order to conform to our increasingly health-conscious yet fast-paced lifestyles. Yes, it was a sad weekend for fat guys everywhere. Once again, skinny people are trying to change institutions that have defined the fat-person experience since before America knew that 3,000 calories and a pack of cigarettes a day leads to conditions like early death.
McDonald’s announced that it was launching a major initiative to improve customer service. According to a Wall Street Journal article, a continually downward slide in sales and an increasing number of complaints about the quality of customer service has motivated corporate management to focus on things such as the friendliness of cashiers at its franchises and the efficiency at which food is served to customers. That’s right, because when I’m being served what is basically cow crap in between Styrofoam that’s been painted tan, I want the person who just took my money to smile, letting me know that this is at least friendly garbage I’m ingesting.
